Subject: Invaluable for my survival book
I've been writing on a survival manual since I was in High school and when the local university closed its library to me had become my main resource. This cookbook is a good one.

Subject: Martha Washington's Mother's Cookbook
I have the remnants of an almost identical cookbook with Martha Washington's Mother's Cookbook on the spine and Mother's Cook Book. at the top of each page. It belonged to my great grandmother. Unfortunately I only have pages 15-306 so I was very happy to see the additional pages. This one seems to vary a little - illustrations are included with the carving section in mine.

Subject: Good read!
This has excellent information in it. It may be an "old" book, but some of the items are timeless.

Subject: The everyday cookbook illustrated
I was very excited to find this cookbook among my mother's treasures. It is indeed the 1891 version in the brown cover with black print. It has remedies for many things including headaches and behavior to women's fashion and manners. Not sure of its' value but is in fair condition.

Subject: nearly identical to THE EVERY-DAY COOK-BOOK
I have an antique cookbook (inherited) which is nearly identical in all respects to THE EVERY-DAY COOK-BOOK, except the title is THE COMMON SENSE COOK BOOK FOR EVERY DAY. The headings for each page are "THE EVERYDAY (no hyphen) COOK-BOOK". Unfortunately, the bottom half of the title page is missing. So, I am unable to identify the author's name and publisher and year. Would you have any information on this version of the book?
By the way, this website was invaluable for my research.
